New Ways to Disseminate the US National Notifiable Disease Provisional Data
The purpose of this study was to identify ideas for an enhanced dissemination of the US National Notifiable Diseases Surveillance System (NNDSS) provisional data. The author conducted a search of all US State Health Department websites looking for on-line data display tables and tools for either reportable or notifiable diseases. In addition, the scope of the search of websites was expanded to include notifiable diseases of several countries, organizations and institutions. As a result of this study the author proposes enhancement of the current US notifiable disease data display from a static format to a more interactive dashboard design.
